CHICAGO (AP) - General Motors
has developed a smaller, lighter, more
powerful battery that will enable it to
market electric-powered cars by 1985,
the Chicago Tribune said in a copyright
Cliff Merriott, director of news
relations for GM in Detroit,"said
yesterday, "General Motors has no
comment on the Chicago Tribune
report. Mr. Elliott Estes, GM president,
will be in Washington on Tuesday to
make some announcement." He
declined to elaborate.
The newspaper said it had been told
that Estes' announcement will be of a
major breakthrough in battery
THE TRIBUNE said that by 1985, if
not sooner, GM will use new zinc nickel
oxide batteries, with a life span of
20,000-30,000 miles, and .an electric
motor to power some of its cars.
The new type battery is said to have
about twice the power of the lead-acid
battery it will replace and will need
recharging every 100 or so miles. This
compares with 50 miles for GM's ex-
perimental Electrovette using lead-
The Tribune said replacement costs
for the new batteries would be
anywhere from $800 to $1,200.

Zbigniew Brzezinski made the comments to a group of

Brzezinski said there was no sense in "shooting oneself in

AND, HE SAID, it would be "a cop-out" to reject the new
strategic arms limitation treaty (SALT II).
Carter described the situation this way: "We are meeting'
with the Soviet Union, assessing our intelligence data, under-
standing clearly what is the status quo, and I'll have to make
a judgment on what to do about it within the near future.
"If this effort should be unsuccessful, then I would have to
take appropriate action, and to go into further detail than
that would be inappropriate."
stance on Cuba
IN A SEPARATE session, the editors asked Brzezinski if
military action had been ruled out.
Brzezinski said the situation-an estimated 2,000 to 3,000
Soviet combat troops stationed in Cuba-is not as dangerous
as the 1962 Cuban missile crisis, which "posed a direct overt
strategic threat to the United States" in the context of a
wider crisis between the two powers over Berlin.
"This is not a situation like 1962," he said. "The crisis is
neither immediatenor as threatening by a long shot."
ASKED WHETHER U.S. wheat exports to Russia mightt
be curtailed, Brzezinski replied, "We do not think that the
prfofitable response to the Soviet Union 'is one which involves
shooting oneself in the foot in the same process."
He added, "It is a cop-out from the world of competitiort to
reject SALT II as a substitute for effectively competing"
with the Soviet Union. "In rejecting SALT, we punish our-
selves as much, if not more than we punish the Soviet
On the troops issue, he said, "We are not seeking a
solution which involves the humiliation of one side, and the
proclamation of a victory by the other side."
